Pet Bestiary

Pets are yet another way to develop your character in the world of Azeroth. Hunters and Warlocks are able to capture or summon companions to share their journeys and even assist in battle ("combat pets"). For everyone else, options for combat pets are limited, but everyone can benefit from non-combat pets! From the gnome rogue who wants a chicken to the orc hunter who wants a worg pup to match his mount and combat pet, non-combat pets make your character more individual for the cost of an item slot. Many of the pets have an additional (randomly performed) animated behavior, just to add even more character (as an example, all cat pets will occasionally stretch).

So where can you get yourself a wonderful and low maintenance companion?

Purchased Pets

Some pets may be purchased from vendors. These are generally Bind on Equip, and so may be sold or traded. This is especially important because most of the vendors are faction-specific. For an Alliance character to have a cockroach for a pet requires a Horde character to buy it in the Undercity and sell it via the neutral auction house. The AH will also be the only way for a character who doesn't have the Burning Crusade expansion to gain the vendor pets from the draenei or blood elves. Also, some of the pets are limited supply items, which means that the vendor will have a set number (usually one) for sale; if someone else has already bought your desired pet, you will need to wait for the vendor to restock (usually 10-15 minutes).

Crafted Pets

Engineers can produce both combat and non-combat pets using their ingenious crafting skills. The non-combat ones do not require engineering skills to use, making them unique gifts. For fisherfolk, the Burning Crusade and Wrath each added a new "fishable" vanity pet.

Rarely, when fishing in Highland Mixed Schools in Terokkar Forest (requiring aerial access - so this requires a L68 druid or L70 for everyone else), you can fish a Mr. Pinchy, who has 3 charges.

This is a rare catch when fishing in the Dalaran sewers (approximately 525 skill to avoid missed catches). Fishing off the docks at the inn seems to be the standard place.

Dropped Pets

If player characters like pets so much, it stands to reason that the NPC mobs do as well. A variety of pets are out there for the looting. These pets are usually Bind on Use. Drop rates provided by Thottbot.
